The other week I took a trip to Anfield Stadium where I was invited to The Liverpool Vegan Festival. Although I myself am not a vegan, you might have noticed from a few of my recipe posts that I love vegan food. I did, however, go with my vegan friend to get the low-down on all the best looking treats.
Arriving at the Venue
Going into the event I was expecting different stalls, each with plenty of great vegan foods and drinks. And I definitely wasn’t disappointed! We arrived at the stadium and headed up to the festival. As we walked in we were greeted with a programme for the day and vegan snack bar on entrance. Once we arrived in the actual festival area we were surrounded by stall after stall of amazing vegan companies each showcasing their products.
Checking Out the Stalls
Something that I wasn’t expecting there to be were clothing and beauty stalls. I don’t know why I had it in my head that it was solely a food and drink event but for some reason I did! However, I was pleasantly surprised to stumble across some non-food stalls. As a huge lover of jewellery, it was great to see some ethical accessory stalls at the festival. It’s definitely something that I’ll be doing some more research into!
The…Carrot on Top of the Cake
I finished with a slice of carrot cake from The London Feel Good Co Ltd. and I have to say it was absolutely gorgeous. Carrot cake is one of my favourite cakes of all time and, considering this was a completely vegan alternative, it tasted just as a non-vegan carrot cake would. If you’re looking for a vegan alternative then I’d definitely recommend checking them out!
We ended the day with a trip to one of my favourite spots in Liverpool city centre, Einstein Bier Haus. If you’re looking for a great spot for a few drinks this summer then make sure to check out my post about Einstein Bier Haus for some serious fruity beer envy!
Have you ever been to a vegan festival before? Are you a vegan yourself? Maybe, like me, you aren’t vegan but love vegan food! Let me know in the comments.
